Why the Trakehner is the ideal Sporthorse. Breeding - last view 1 hour 6 min ago. NorthernMama is offline. Haffies tend to have frogs on steroids. I guess no one else had tried these Just wondering why the frogs need trimming. I am a barefoot trimmer who trims a large number of horses and the only time I touch the frogs is to remove growth that blocks the collateral grooves.
Patty Stiller. An untrimmed frog with thick extra layers that extend too far beyond the trimmed foot can get sore. Remember that in a truly self maintaining foot the walls wear AND the sole AND frog will keep themselves trimmed by shedding off bits all the time. But in a domestic foot that did not get that chance to wear adequately, WE have to do the maintenance on the frog as well as the rest of the foot.
It is also good to open the central sulcis, removing flaps that have covered it over to help frog function and prevent thrush. Patty Stiller is offline. As to the tools, I use a good knife, or my nippers on hard very thick frog overgrowth. You can use the nippers in many ways holding them with the blades more vertical or at angles to snip off corners. They are not just for hoof walls.

Thanks patty. After I acquired my haffie, I found out that one of their common characteristic is huge frogs that often need "assistance". It is just difficult for me get the nippers in at some of the more challenging angles and crevices, and a knife often proves to be no match for them..
The bonsai cutters may not help at all, but I already ordered a pair - so if they prove to be useless I will report back and spare anyone else the bother. Altho if I happen to be using resecting half round nips, I've found they can be good to use on frogs, and especially on drafty or otherwise 'stubborn' bars.

I now see that having gotten the round style might have been a better choice. I believed the blades were just dull, but no I am just frog trimming challenged!! Foxtail Ranch likes this. Quote message in reply?
